I think you are speaking of the upgraded relay. It keeps the plugs glowing for about a minute after start to smooth out the cold idle.

That would be what I heard about. Any ideas on price? and does it work (from your knowledge)?

It's possible to do a simple wiring change to enable the afterglow feature on an existing relay. Do a search on the words: "purple wire".

I would think this would shorten the glow plug life a bit though. Maybe you would only want this during the winter months.
